Undergraduate Study



I love the diversity of the student body at Hughes Hall. With one of the most international intakes at Cambridge, you are always around friendly people with really interesting backgrounds and experiences.


Hughes Hall is a different type of Cambridge College. We are a friendly and supportive academic community, with around 100 mature or affiliated undergraduates and up to 600 postgraduates. Two thirds of these students come from outside the UK. We understand the challenges that face mature and affiliated undergraduates, including international students, at the University of Cambridge, and have a pastoral and tutorial team experienced in providing appropriate support and advice.

College Fellows represent the breadth of Cambridge disciplines, as well as incorporating distinguished individuals from business, law, education and policymaking. Across the globe, Hughes Hall alumni include leading business people, engineers and scientists, government ministers, senior members of the legal profession, and a gold medal Olympian. Together, these Fellows and Alumni provide a College network of scholars and professionals that supports our current students.

Cambridge has much to offer in the form of both College and University level societies and sports. Hughes Hall students are strongly involved: they regularly represent Cambridge on University teams, and contribute to a diverse community where all can flourish.

Hughes Hall has many excellent quality public spaces and student rooms, from the grand Victorian main building, to modern accommodation and nearby shared houses. All room rents are set bearing in mind affordability, and as an undergraduate you are guaranteed a room for every year of your course.

The College is situated beside the lively, cosmopolitan area of Mill Road. It is within a 10-minute bike ride of most faculties, yet surrounded by the peaceful green spaces of the University cricket ground and Parker’s Piece. It is also close to the train and bus stations.
